Do we have to be members of New Life Church to go through the premarital process or have a NLC pastor officiate our wedding?

No. You do not have to be a member of NLC to go through our premarital process or to have one of our pastors officiate your wedding.

What are the guidelines for a New Life pastor to officiate our wedding?

If you are interested in having a NLC pastor officiate your wedding, premarital counseling is required prior to the wedding. If the premarital counseling is completed outside of New Life Church, counseling must be scripture-based, and we will need documentation of completion. This documentation should include the curriculum studied, a minimum of 6 hours completed and who facilitated your process . In addition, we recommend an honorarium be given to the NLC Staff who officiate, coordinate, or perform at your wedding. We ask that these be given to them in person on or before the day of your wedding. For recommended amounts, speak to the Pastor who performs your premarital counseling.

Is there a cost for premarital counseling?

There is no cost to receive premarital counseling for members of New Life Church.
